several questions

I had this setup in my 29... 3 botia angelicus, 2 hillstream loaches, 3 black skirts, 1 dwarf gourami, 1 flame dwarf gourami, 1 blue ram. the flame became a bully and killed the dwarf gourami and the ram within a week, which is odd because i had tank unchanged for months. now i took him out and traded him for 3 red eye tetras. I have also added 3 sunset platy's and 1 paradise fish (great personality and highly recommended). I have two peices of long slate in an upside dwon "V". the botias would wedge themselves into the "V" unless feeding or night time. Now i have a slate rock running from teh "V" to another rock providing a canopy across another peice of slate underneath. They love this and are out all the time. they also started coming out more often once the flame g. was out, though they were dominant over him.
